CSUPERB administers competitive grant and award programs open to California State University (CSU) faculty and students.
CSUPERB defines biotechnology as a fusion of biology and technology. The Biotechnology Industry Organization lists biotechnology examples, applications and sectors. CSUPERB explicitly adds to these lists health IT and medical device research and development. CSUPERB welcomes and encourages applications from CSU faculty and students in all disciplines related to the current practice of biotechnology, including but not limited to life sciences, physical sciences, clinical sciences, math, computer science, agricultural science, engineering, and/or business.
